ASA Announces Key Leadership Changes

“The restructuring will help allocate resources and personnel expediently, drive growth in services, meet changing customer demands and enable strategic innovation across our product pipeline,” said Dave Vogel, general manager of ASA Automotive Systems.

ASA Automotive Systems, a software provider for independent tire and auto service dealers, recently announced organizational and key leadership changes that align with its corporate restructuring and growth strategy.

The organizational restructuring is aligned with preparing departmental managers with business unit level responsibility. “Our single-largest challenge at Fog and Constellation (Software, Inc.) is grooming or attracting qualified leaders as we continue to grow those companies, organically or acquisitively, within our portfolios.” said Marc Belanski, automotive portfolio manager at Fog Software Group.

“The restructuring will help allocate resources and personnel expediently, drive growth in services, meet changing customer demands and enable strategic innovation across our product pipeline,” said Dave Vogel, general manager of ASA Automotive Systems. 

As a result of restructuring, the following senior level leadership changes will take place:

Hasan Askari, currently executive director of Enterprise Products, has been appointed as executive director of Enterprise Sales, reporting to Vogel. Askari and his team will focus on consulting with existing ASA customers, providing input on best practices while sharing additional products/services available to ASA clientele. Askari is based in the Deerfield, Illinois, office.

Ashley Hopkins, currently TireMaster Enterprise (TME) Professional Services manager, will take on the role of director of Enterprise Operations, reporting to Vogel. Hopkins will oversee departments providing service and support to the existing Enterprise customer base to include the TME, TirePro and TireMax product lines. Hopkins is based in the Londonderry, New Hampshire, office.

Jared Bailey, currently TireMaster Professional Services manager will take the role of director of TireMaster Operations, reporting to Vogel. Bailey will oversee departments providing service and support to TireMaster’s existing customer base as well as onboarding new customers in continued growth. Bailey is based in Meridian, Idaho. 

“The leadership changes were all made with the intent to bring our people and products closer together, continuing to develop personnel and place them in roles that maximize their talents and company goals,” Vogel added. “I am very excited to see how the next generation of leaders will play an instrumental role in energizing their teams, connecting with our customers and positioning ASA and our customers for profitable growth.”
